We all want the same things in life. We want freedom; we want freedom; we want the chance for prosperity; we want as few people suffering as possible; we want healthy children; we want crime –free streets. The argument is how to achieve them…

It is the duty of the government to alleviate social ills and to protect civil liberties and individual human rights. Liberals believe the role of government should be to guarantee that no one is in need. Liberal policies generally emphasize the need for government to solve the problem.

 

Conservatives 

Conservatives believe in personal responsibility, limited government, free markets, individual liberty, traditional American values and strong national defense. Conservatives believe the role of government should be to provide people the freedom necessary to pursue their own goals. Conservative policies generally emphasize empowerment of the individual to solve problems
